Success Stories


Helping organizations big and small achieve their missions

Resource Associates has a proven track record of winning grants. The grant professionals at Resource Associates have won hundreds of millions of dollars in funding awards since 1995. Our clients appreciate the level of service they receive and are consistently awarded grants that provide a significant return on their investment in hiring our grant writing experts.

Check out this case study of a rural medical center in southern Colorado…

In 2009, Resource Associates was contracted to identify and write a total of 22 grants and Letters of Intent. Of those 22:

• 7 were Letters of Intent
• 3 were cancelled by the client
• 2 received invitations to apply, resulting in grants that were funded.
• 2 were denied
• 15 were Grant Applications
• 7 were cancelled by the client
• 2 were denied
• 6 were funded

Total fees paid = $46,450.
Total funds awarded = $1,989,779

ROI = ($1,989,779 – $46,450)/($46,450) x 100 = 4,183%

“We are working with Resource Associates to secure vital funding for the Los Coyotes Band of Indians.Our organization wanted a professional and helpful partner when navigating the grant sourcing and request writing process. They have exceeded our expectations. The entire staff at RA is helpful and very knowledgeable, they sourced our first opportunity within hours of contacting them. I would personally recommend their team to anyone.”~ Chris Dusa, Deputy Chief, Los Coyotes Fire Department

South Lane School District Children’s Dental Clinic Case Study

The Children’s Dental Clinic provides free dental services for underserved children in Lane and Douglas counties, Oregon. They were awarded $15,000 from the Pacific Source Foundation $140,133 from the Meyer Memorial Trust Grant. Resource Associates wrote both grants on the Dental Clinic’s behalf.

In addition, Resource Associates’ wrote a proposal to the A-Dec Charitable Foundation to request new dental chairs. The Dental Clinic let Resource Associates know that the foundation “not only donated the dental chairs, but free stools for the dentists and assistants too. Plus, free delivery and set up. Resource Associates provided many more resources then we requested! It’s wonderful news for our clinic. Without your help we couldn’t have done it.”

I hope all is well, I wanted to shoot you an email regarding our good friends at Resource  and associates and John Nawrocki. Just briefly I wanted to say that last year they wrote a winning grant application for us to receive a 21st Century grant from the Maryland State Board of Education. They were professional and helpful throughout the entire process, and most of all they are winners and have a winning system. I highly recommend their service to any non-profit that is serious about becoming more competitive in winning grants to help support the amazing work they do. Feel free to contact me with any other questions.

Bridges of America

“On behalf of Dr. Karl Mehta and myself, and I feel I can probably speak for the rest of the team at DTC and CUNY as well, we would like to commend the extraordinary work you have done on the Grassroots Innovation Network TAACCCT grant proposal. The grant writer you assigned was diligent, thorough, and expedient. She was very quick to digest a vast amount of information, fill in data gaps, and integrate input from several sources into a coherent, comprehensive, and compelling proposal. She worked around the clock and made herself available for all and any questions despite having to work against an extremely tight deadline. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with her and the rest of your team.”

Giadha DeCacer, Founder and CEO

Kake Alaska

“Since I began using Resource Associates over 10 years ago, the two rural Alaska school districts that I have been the Superintendent of have been awarded over $5 million in state and federal grant funds. They are everything and more in what I need from a grant writer. The grant evaluation services are also top notch and the professional evaluation services score well on the applications. Since I first contracted with Resource Associates, way back when, I have not used anyone else.

I just received a call from Karen McCarthy, staff to Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, and I was informed that both the Alaska Native Education Grant and the Elementary and Secondary Counseling Grants are winners for the Nenana City School District! Official awards will come from USDOE in the future, but for now, thank you so much for all your great work! That makes Resource Associates and the Nenana City School District 3 for 3 this year! I guess you can keep me on the web-site under “Testimonials”! ”

Eric Gebhart, Superintendent

Wachusett Regional School District

“We have been working with Resource Associates for about two years now. We have applied for two federal grants with them during that time and were awarded both. These grants total nearly $4 million. Needless to say, it has been a very successful and fruitful relationship and I would highly recommend working with Resource Associates. Feel free to contact me with further questions.”
